2. Great view on a historic course
The venue is conveniently located at a nice, little park near The National Cheng Chi University, and at the bottom of a hill that is home to the historic Zhinan Temple. The stair course winds up the hill and along beautiful sculptures and architectures, offering a panoramic views of Taipei.
3. A worthy challenge
We’ll be honest. The course consists of stairs. Lots of stairs. Stairs galore. Over 1300 steps in all. 1 km, 200m+ vert. It will test your leg muscles, your cardiovascular fitness and your mental resolve. Happiness, in the form of a great challenge, awaits.
4. Children friendly
Though steep, the course direction is simple. It’s ideal for parents to let go a little and allow your children to complete a race independently. We’ve had many finishers between the ages of 5-12 in the past two events.
5. Delicious and healthy eats
Eat well run well. Runivore will prepare a gluten-free oat breakfast, and with an assortment of fruits and nuts as toppings. Chia Seeds Fresca will be flowing as well. Just an all-around meal created to make you happy and help you recover. We will also have on-site discounts for our Superfood Energy Bars. Yummay!
6. Creative awards
In addition to prizes for the top 3 male and female finishers, we will also award the most senior and youngest participants. Here at Runivore, we celebrate all-levels of badass achievements.
7. Measure your progress
The Great Stair Challenge is a twice-a-year event. Participate regularly and use this race as gauge of your training progress.
8. Add variety to your workouts
It’s important to periodically diversify your workouts. Variety is key to training neglected muscles and gives your cardiovascular system a different type of jolt. It’s also a good way to spice up the monotony of a training cycle.
